    BACKGROUND: Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) has been shown to improve the clearance of carbon dioxide and minute ventilation (̇VE) in select patients with COPD. One variable often assessed in COPD is ventilatory efficiency (̇VE/ ̇VCO2. METHODS: We compared 55 LVRS subjects with...

    Background: Diaphragmatic breathing (DB) is widely used in pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), however it has been little studied in the scientific literature. The Pilates breathing (PB) method has also been used in the rehabilitation area...

    Background: Restrictive impairment is the commonest reported pulmonary deficit in AIS, which improves following surgical operation. However, exact mechanism of how improvement is brought about is unknown. Dynamic fast breath-hold (BH)-MR imaging is a recent advance which provides direct...

    Background: This study examined the effects of inhaled furosemide on the ventilatory and perceptual response to high-intensity constant-load cycle exercise in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Methods: In a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, 20 patients...
